I'm very new to QGIS, but in the past days I've created 3 different maps. I have now downloaded DEM data in ASC format, and when I open it as a raster file in a new QGIS project there is no problem, I switch it to hillshade and it displays perfectly. The problem is when I want to have this DEM in the same file as my 3 maps (polygons). It loads, but it is not visible.
If I open my 3 maps and then load my DEM, the DEM doesn't show. And if I open the DEM in a new blank file, and I load my polygons from my 3 maps, the polygons don't show. It's as if they're not compatible with each other.
I've also opened the DEM in ASC format and exported it as GeoTIFF, and afterwards I loaded the GeoTIFF format into the file where my maps are, but the the DEM still doesn't appear.
